Chanel splurge! (No 5 Limited Edition 200ml Bottle and Bath Soap)

I'm such a sucker for "Limited Edition" or seasonal makeup, and apparently, fragrances are no exception ... at least, if you're Chanel No 5 (Marilyn Monroe's favorite). I find that I don't like most perfumes I test out at the department stores, but Chanel No 5 is my first perfume love <3. The scent is practically nostalgic for me - reminding me of the Winters of Chicagoland and rummaging through my mother's vanity area as a kid. And, surprisingly enough, I do not own a bottle of Chanel No 5 on my own vanity right now (I have no idea why). So, what better excuse to splurge on the Limited Edition 200ml (6.8 FL oz) bottle of Chanel No 5 Eau de Parfum? :D.

Yes, it is a luxury splurge (by no means a necessity), but I look at it as not only a sentimental perfume, but also a beautiful, and rather stunning, bottle to add on top of my makeup drawer (a.k.a., my makeshift vanity). I rather enjoy the aesthetic value of luxury products like Chanel. I really appreciate the lovely packaging, and the beautiful look of it on top of my makeup drawers. Also, I can't imagine needing to buy another bottle of Chanel No 5 anytime soon - this bottle is a BEAST! ;)

And yes, if you've watched my Winterlicious video, I mentioned in it that I also bought the limited edition Chanel No 5 bath soap. (You can see it on my YouTube video thumbnail right there!).

I absolute LOVE this bath soap! I mention in the video that the only thing more ridiculous than buying a $75 (well, $60 after 20% discount at Saks) bath soap, is buying a $75 ($60) bath soap and NOT using it (as a bath soap). This little pretty serves as a beautiful decorative piece in my bathroom sink top and is as wonderfully fragrant as any potpourri. I love the fresh scent of Chanel No 5 as I enter my bathroom, and the bath soap and soap dish are such an elegant touch on the sink top. What can I say, I'm a Chanel No 5 addict :).
